Authors Bio

Nosipho Siwisa-Damasane is a force to be reckoned with. Described in Finding the Woman Within:  How to thrive in a male dominated society as being a shatterer of glass ceilings and someone who rewrote the rules, she has won multiple awards which have honoured her work as CEO of a variety of highly recognised companies.

Nosipho Siwisa-Damasane was born in Peddie in the Eastern Cape South Africa where she grew up and then studied. She spent 10 years working for auditing firms (Aitken and Peat; now KPMG and Ernst and Young) where she finished her articles in auditing.

 

She then joined Transnet in 1998 as East London Port Manager as the first woman in this then male dominated role.  Some of these awards are:

 

  • The CEO of the Year Award, in 2014, which was awarded by the Institute of People Management,
  • The Business Woman of the Year Award in the corporate category which was awarded to her in
    2015
  • The Woman in Logistics Award in SADC in 2015.

 

Nosipho started off her studies with an accounting degree. After she qualified, Nosipho spent several years in South Africa’s highly regarded auditing firms before turning her focus to port logistics.
